Join Uli Lorimer, Native Plant Trust’s Director of Horticulture, for the debut of his new book highlighting our region’s spectacular plant diversity and varied habitats. The Northeast Native Plant Primer provides a roadmap to help you to include native plants in your garden whether you are new to gardening or a seasoned professional. For those of us who care about the natural world, the decision to plant natives in the garden is one of the most impactful and important choices we can make. With so much under threat from a changing climate, invasive species, habitat loss and fragmentation, and declining numbers of birds and insects, planting natives in your garden shows you are trying to make a difference. Native plants have the power to heal our landscapes, welcome wildlife into our gardens, and inspire us.
